Nestled in a natural amphitheatre on the Algarve coast sits Palmares Ocean Living & Golf. The resort combines exceptional golfing and leisure facilities with spectacular sea views over the estuary of Alvor in Portugal’s Western Algarve.
Property buyers at Palmares can enjoy luxury at every turn. They can choose homes designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architects RCR Arquitectes and eat in the new fine dining restaurant, Al Sud, where Michelin-starred Executive Chef Louis Anjos is serving up the very best flavours of the Algarve.
Chef Anjos is already in charge of the hotel and clubhouse restaurants at Palmares, both of which operate to the renowned chef’s exacting standards. The clubhouse, also designed by RCR Arquitectes and with views over the Bay of Lagos and the Alvor Estuary, is the perfect spot to unwind.
Since reworking the clubhouse menu when he started there in November 2020, Chef Anjos has delivered gourmet treats such as local Alvor oysters and tempura asparagus. His seafood rice with sea bass is like eating the Algarve on a plate, while the oxtail ravioli is the perfect hearty dish after a strenuous round of golf. At Al Sud, Chef Anjos’ eight, ten and 13-dish tasting menus take diners on a gastronomic journey across the Algarve, which is known for its olives, almonds, honey and citrus fruit, as well as its bountiful fish and shellfish. Fresh, seasonal flavours will be complemented by fine wines from across Portugal.
Palmares Ocean Living’s sporting facilities are also exceptional. From the resort’s 27-hole golf course, designed by legendary American architect Robert Trent Jones Jr, to the pool and wellness facilities, everything has been designed with luxury firmly in mind.
Buyers have a range of options available at Palmares Ocean Living. One example, due for completion this summer and priced at €3.4 million, is a four-bedroom, four-bathroom golf-front and ocean-view villa, with turnkey design by RCR Arquitectes.
Every home at Palmares Ocean Living & Golf has been designed with privacy and serenity in mind. The low-density construction, at just 5.7%, forges an exceptional harmony between residential accommodation, golf and the ocean. Strict construction parameters have been put in place to protect the sea views, including building implementation zones and height limits. This ensures that each home has the opportunity to benefit individually from the stunning natural surroundings.
Villas and apartments at Palmares Ocean Living are part of a masterplan of 460 homes (103 villas, 357 apartments), a second five-star hotel (complementing the existing boutique 20-room 5*hotel) and an array of sports and leisure facilities. Ownership includes annual golf membership for two.
For buyers who prefer to relax on the beach rather than the golf course, the golden sands of the stunning 4km Meia-Praia beach are just steps from the resort. The characterful town of Lagos, meanwhile, is just a 10-minute drive away.
